    The grandson of a slave, Dr. Ossian Sweet moved his family to an all-white Detroit neighborhood in 1925. When his neighbors attempted to drive him out, Sweet defended himself, resulting in the death of a white man and a murder trial for Sweet. There followed one of the most important (and shockingly unknown) cases in Civil Rights history. Also caught up in the intense courtroom drama were legal giant Clarence Darrow and the newly formed National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

    Story

    I enjoyed this book and it kept my interest for the most part. There were some parts where I just zoned out. It was a lot of historical information and though pertinent to the overall story, it just got boring at times. But overall, I enjoyed. These are the lessons on life, race and injustice you aren't taught in school. It is honest and important.
